Can Foods Forestall Aging? Studies at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University in Boston suggest that consuming fruits and vegetables with a high-ORAC value may help slow the aging process in both body and brain. ORAC–short for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity–measures the ability of foods, blood plasma, and just about any substance to subdue oxygen-free radicals in the test tube.

This is one of the most practical, down-to-earth applications of the usefulness of the Internet. Here is an example of personal use. Health conditions. If you want to learn more about any medical condition, get the exact spelling of the condition, go to www.google.com for the USA and World or www.google.ca in Canada, type in the condition and put quotation marks around it. A list will appear. You can then investigate by clicking on these links. Any result you get, run it by your Doctor. It would be best to not rely on anything you get off the Internet but rather use it for more education and knowledge to talk to your Doctor.
Ultimately we are responsible for our own lives. A personal family member of mine had a condition called Meniere’s Disease. It is a condition of the ear that can cause dizziness, earaches, etc. One would be worried about driving a car. Although there is no cure, there are things one can do not to aggravate the situation. The Doctor was not 100% current about what one could do. I found that dizziness would be minimized on the Internet if one cut out chocolate and caffeine. It just so happened my family member had coffee and chocolate each day. Once stopped, the dizziness stopped the next day! This did not come from our Doctor. It was from a specialized report by another Doctor who specialized in and studied this disease and placed his findings on the Internet.
Further, there were health groups and people who shared their experiences on the Internet, which made my family member feel better for the understanding it provided. So search www.google.com for any medical condition. You can search any search engine, but this has been the most productive and helpful site for me on the Internet for many things. I feel comfortable with it. Some computer journals and reporters have given it the highest marks in reports comparing search engines. It will also lead to medical sites, so don’t just stop there.
A great medical site! I often listen to Dr. Mirkin on the radio. A forty-year-old practicing physician and a talk show host for twenty, Dr. Gabe Mirkin is now heard weekly from 4-7 PM (ET) on the Talk America Radio Network and DrMirkin.com. The Dr. Gabe Mirkin Show is broadcast on more than 75 radio stations in the US and Canada. Dr. Mirkin wrote the chapter on sports injuries for the Merck Manual (both lay and physicians’ editions), the giant-selling book worldwide with over one million copies in print. He has been the fitness broadcaster for CBS Radio News since the 1970s. Over 25,000 subscribers read his monthly “Mirkin Report, a newsletter on the latest medical breakthroughs and healthy lifestyle information. He has written 16 books, including The Sportsmedicine Book, the best-selling book on the subject that has been translated into many languages. Dr. Mirkin doesn’t rely on press releases; he goes directly to medical journals. He frequently finds studies or spots trends in research that the popular media ignore.

I found many benefits to these chocolates, including losing weight because it curbs appetite.
If you have one an hour before supper, you do not have to eat as much.
Have one between meals to curb snacking on junk food.
All the while maintaining an antioxidant-rich body; hopefully,
These antioxidants fight disease, etc.
When you consider how many families have someone that has cancer, it makes you wonder that we all have it, but some fight it off better than others. Having a proper anti-oxidant-rich body might be the answer.

This is interesting!! I knew you needed your minimum water to flush the toxins out of your body, but this was news to me.
Correct Time to Drink Water….Very Important from a Cardiac Specialist! Drinking water at a specific time maximizes its effectiveness on the body: 2 glasses of water after waking up – helps activate internal organs, one glass of water 30 minutes before a meal – helps digestion, one glass of water before taking a bath – helps lower blood pressure one glass of water before going to bed – avoids stroke or heart attack.
